The tragic explanation for why Elon Musk won't let Alex Jones return to Twitter has been made public. It has to do with the death of children at the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, forcing Musk to share the details of his firstborn child’s death.

Given that Jones circulated rumors about the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting which resulted in the deaths of 26 people, including 20 children, Musk declared that Jones deserves "no mercy" after enduring the pain of losing a child himself. "My firstborn child died in my arms," Musk wrote on Monday, November 21, according to The Sun. "I felt his last heartbeat. I have no mercy for anyone who would use the deaths of children for gain, politics, or fame." Musk lost his son Nevada Alexander Musk to SIDS. In his explanation of why Jones's ban had been maintained, Twitter's new owner cited scripture as well. "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

It comes after a Connecticut jury last month ordered Jones, 48, to pay an astounding $965 million in compensatory damages for spreading false information about the 2012 elementary school shooting. According to The New York Times, one of Jones' remarks was that the massacre was a "false flag" operation staged by the government as justification for a gun ban and that the relatives of the victims were playing the victim which caused some of them to get death threats. A judge restricted Jones' ability to move assets abroad earlier this month and ordered Jones to pay another $473 million to families in a separate defamation lawsuit.

How did Elon Musk’s child die?

Nevada Alexander Musk, the first child of Elon Musk, was born on May 18, 2002, and tragically died ten days later on May 28, 2002. Nevada reportedly died unexpectedly from Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) which is characterized as a newborn's sudden and unexplained death. Although the exact etiology of SIDS is unknown, many studies suggest that a number of variables may be to blame. These include a variety of sleep-related problems, neurological abnormalities, low birth weight, and respiratory illnesses. Elon and his ex-wife Justine Musk were severely affected by the death of their child, as would anyone who would suffer such a loss. However, they were able to get back up after falling. Later in 2004, Elon became a father once again to identical twin boys, Griffin and Xavier Musk.
